Theatre Royal Stratford East is the people's theatre that celebrate voices, focusing on musicals and new writing. We dare and we explore – without shying away from the complexities; we nurture and develop narratives that are reflective of our local community and the wider world in which they live.
Submissions - Musicals & New writing
Theatre Royal Stratford East is currently reviewing its submissions policy for the main stage. Please keep checking this page for more information.
Submissions - Gerry's
Gerry’s is our 60 seat flexi-space studio. It’s a place to be daring, inventive and bold.
New opportunitiy: Callout for new work for new festival Stronger than Fear - a festival of hope
If you would like to submit your work for consideration for our Studio space, please send information directly to Associate Producer Daisy Hale at email@example.com - this can be in the form of a script, video links, invites to see work or a tour pack.
If you are a writer sending a script, please be clear in what you are looking for, whether that be a reading, notes, or are wanting to stage your work. Gerry's is mostly a receiving house and therefore new writing should come with a producing team if being considered for staging.
We strongly encourage work from artists that are under-represented in theatre and work alongside all our visiting artists carefully to mentor and nurture their work. Please note that Gerry's programmes shows that are already realised or have a team attached to them.
Please do not contact Daisy with scripts for the main stage as this submission window is under review. Daisy also programmes a rolling season of events for our cafe space. If you're a poet, artist, cabaret artist, singer, musician or want to host your own night, please get in touch.
We advertise in SBS, Equity's Job Information Service and occasionally Spotlight and PRS.
Please send submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
